Information about Year 3

The school day begins at 8:45 and ends at 15:00. Playtime is at 11:00 for 15 minutes, and lunchtime runs from 12:15 to 13:00. 


Children should bring their reading folder every day. In the folder should be their reading diary, reading book and homework book. Children will be given a slot each week to change their reading book but they can also do this at any point if they have finished their book or are not enjoying it. 


While we don't have spelling tests, new spellings that are all linked by a spelling pattern will be given out on a Friday.  Please practice these as they really help with spelling expectations in year 3.


Forest School

For Autumn 1 term Year 3 will have forest school every Tuesday afternoon.  They will need to bring a bag with a change of clothes including any appropriate forest school clothing (i.e. wellies, waterproofs and any other items the weather may require). 


Homework for Year 3 

Read at least 3 times a week 

Practice times tables at least 3 times a week

Practice spellings


Times tables prize!

 Children are encouraged to practise their times tables at home and their teachers will keep track of their progress.  Every week a Mathematics Super Star will be selected from each class to encourage you!


Reading prize!

Children are also expected to read at least 3 times a week at home. This can be any book and doesn't have to be their school book if they have already read it. 

Prizes will be given for milestone reads of 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300.
